Now freelancing from South Florida, Dr. Kay Scarpetta returns to the city that turned its back on her five years ago. She travels to Richmond, Virginia, at the odd behest of the recently appointed Chief Medical Examiner who claims that he needs her help. When she arrives she finds that her former lab seems neither as organized nor as well run as it once was.
